The freak coincidence hasn't gone unnoticed, as thousands of people are now properly getting into the curse of Abbas' selfies.


The curse of the @ZAbbasOfficial selfie strikes again...Kohli goes for a duck now..Devilliers yesterday 🤳 👸 #INDvSL #CT17

Fans are now sending her requests to take selfies with players of rival teams.

@ZAbbasOfficial Please. Next selfie with Angelo Mathews. Must get this done before Pakistan vs Srilanka.

Asking her to stay the hell away from their own batsmen...

Starting a petition to ensure @ZAbbasOfficial stays away from all the other Indian batsmen during ICC events.

And fellow journalists are calling for a ban on her coming to sports venues.

Two great batsmen - yesterday de Villiers, today Kohli- of the modern era have bagged ducks after a selfie with @ZAbbasOfficial. #BanHer


She hasn't posted any other cricketer selfies yet, but you can be sure everyone will have their eyes on her feed for the rest of the tournament now.

@ZAbbasOfficial Iss ki sakht zaroorat hai... 😂😉😋😂
